Man robs Target store

STONE MOUNTAIN - A Super Target employee told police he waited 30 minutes after his register was robbed Friday to call 911.

According to a police report, the 19-year-old employee was too scared to call police after a black man armed with a semiautomatic handgun wiped out his register drawer and fled.

The employee said he waited until he was sure the man had left the store on West Park Place Boulevard before notifying authorities.

Carjackers takes man's purple Chevy

WINDER - A man lost his very distinctive car about 11 p.m. Friday when three men took it from him at gunpoint.

The man told Winder police he and two companions were driving down Beulah Street nearing Lily Drive when a green Cadillac with a Rockdale County license plate passed his car and blocked him in. He told police three black men in their late 20s, one holding an old shotgun, told the car's occupants to leave their cell phones inside and get out. One man drove away in the stolen car while the other two followed in the Cadillac, police reports state.

The stolen car is a 1987 purple Chevrolet Caprice Classic that has 26-inch star-shaped wheels with purple dust covers behind them and a wood-grain steering wheel.
